My Windows 10 today had an update and I can't open my Start Menu or use the Search Bar. I've restarted the computer 3 times and I did a system check for corrupted files. None of those ways have worked. I've been hearing from a couple of people that you have to reboot your PC, but I'm afraid of doing it because it would uninstall a ton of programs I have like Vegas and Steam. Is there a way to get the Start Menu working without having to risk on destroying anything?

My laptop has a blackscreen and wont connect to external monitors.

I think its a software driver problem.

But I dont know how computer repair technicians would access the laptop software if that is the case.

WinDirStat is a great tool. It scans a drive of your choosing and shows you a visual of what's taking up all your space. So you can single out files you don't need and delete them accordingly. If you're looking to free some drive space, you should use it. It's pretty awesome. I used it to free up about 8GB worth of space from my SSD by deleting a bunch of Premiere's caching and render files from the last time I was using it. (Tho, I should've been smart enough to change the directory of where cache files are stored to my HDD, lmao). Btw, if you're wondering what those large red ones over to the right are, they're important system files. One of them is the pagefile. If you see large .dll or .sys files, dnt delete them. They're likely very important files and Windows and/or installed programs will probably not work properly afterwards. I know that some are probably gonna end up deleting something really important by accident if I don't say so.

Need some help with Firefox.

The latest update completely broke the Classic Theme Restorer plugin, which is crucial for me. I found workarounds for a lot of things, but currently my stop, reload, back and forward buttons are invisible and I don't know why. Anyone possibly able to help?

So yeah, I think the Windows 10 update pretty much messed up with my Winamp's video codec; which means I can't show videos on there anymore (aka the sound is playing but the picture isn't showing), not only that but it also messed up other players except for Media Player Classic, which is weird. I tried reinstalled Winamp, but nothing happened. Researching this said problem didn't help either because most of them were from older versions of Winamp. If anyone knows how to fix this, please let me know. And before you guys ask, yes I have K-Lite Codec installed, and I think the update pretty much messed up with the codec. Hopefully the next update fixes this problem.

I reset/rebooted my computer altogether but I kept my pictures, documents, and videos to get rid of my Wi-Fi problem. The only problem is that Windows also deleted most programs that I use such as video editors, plugins, drawing tablet drivers, etc. Is there any way to recover these?

I feel arguably due for another computer since my main driver is a 3 year old laptop with an AMD A4 in it. I mean, it works and still functions quite well, all things considered, but I think age and performance wise it is getting to a point where I'm willing to demote it to a tier 2 PC to easily lug around with me just in case I need it. I have a fair amount of money right now to bring a few budget offerings to another desktop I have, but it's a Socket 775 motherboard, and while there are CPUs still capable for it, I think they are reaching the end of their lifespan. I need something more recent.

You could try Recuva however I'm unsure if that will resolve your issue completely.
